National Theater inaugurates nativity scene
The National Theater inaugurated its traditional Nativity Scene on Tuesday evening before a large audience of curious Ticos. The activity featured a performance by the Buenaventura Corrales School children’s choir.
“For the National Theater it is a big pleasure to have a choir from one of the iconic schools in San José, loved and respected by all Costa Ricans, in this important inauguration,” said theater director Fred Herrera. The nativity scene has been an important tradition for Costa Ricans since 1974, when then theater director Graciela Moreno started it.
Different children’s choirs will perform Wednesday and Thursday at 6 p.m. to continue with the inauguration.
